Stand for Peace
Stand for Peace with Congressman John Lewis, Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery and Mrs. Evelyn Lowery
The war in Afghanistan has become America's forgotten war, but 80,000 American troops are still fighting in Afghanistan and they're dying at a rate of one per day. The most recent American death toll is 1,968. These casualties are in addition to 2,332 deaths of Afghan civilians since the start of the war. We stand to remember. We stand to put an end to unnecessary violence and death. We stand for reductions of military spending and funding instead for human and environmental needs. We will continue to stand until all the troops come home.
Join Georgia WAND, Congressman John Lewis, Rev. Dr. Joseph E Lowery and Mrs. Evelyn Lowery this Friday to mark ten years of Standing for Peace!
Noon at Peachtree and 14th Street.
